White Light White Peak - Springing and Falling
The award-winning playwright, photographer, performer and poet, Simon Corble pulls together his varied talents into a unique event of Peak District experiences.
Part One - Springing
& Part Two - Falling.
Starting in the depths of a snowy winter, this live performance is a journey through a White Peak year, including encounters with the weather, wildlife and people; some amusing, some thought-provoking and many involving a Springer Spaniel...or two.
The poems are told from memory and in a conversational style; more like miniature short stories at times, complete with twists and some happy endings. The White Light is all in Simon's monochrome photography: atmospheric landscapes, wildlife shots and enigmatic moments, reflecting the images and moods heard in the poems and projected onto a large screen throughout the performance. With the occasional soundscape, the whole is a highly immersive experience.
